Our first open house was a great success


For the past month we’ve been preparing our farm to receive friends, both old and new. We have never prepared for such a big event and weren’t quite sure what kind of turnout to expect so we worked a little extra to prepare for a big event. Doing so was a good idea as it turned out that over the course of the day we had 49 people come through our gates.

Of course the animals were the hit of the show. The goats stood up well to the constant flow of people in and out of their pen. They even had a few small puppy visitors. I purposely kept the dogs, donkey and sheep isolated in a separate pen as you never really can tell how they are going to react.

I also spent some time in the week before the open house to cut a walking trail through our woods. This particular section of woods is one we haven’t explored much if at all because the area around it was so dense with briars and intertwined small trees. On a tip from a neighbor I bought a brush cutter attachment for my weed eater and was able to forge a very nice trail. It still needs a little work, but our visitors seemed to enjoy a walk in the woods very much.

The event seemed so well received that maybe we’ll plan to do this again next year!

  1. Glad it was a success. I’ve considered getting a blade attachment for our weedeater too. There are plenty of times I could use it (instead of a machete). Now you’ve got me considering it again…

    • This purchase is one well worth the money. It made a day out of a project that would otherwise have taken several with my machete.
